While you're at it, try finding out how many celebs died at, say, 28 or 34 or 55.

I'm sure there will be quite a few.

Okay okay okay maybe it is a dead end but all research has to start somewhere.

Don't be put off. You are onto something.

I listened to a Bono interview recently. He was asked if it was strange to be a middle aged rock star. He said "Well, the thing is, people want you dead at 27. It's a death cult".

Britney gave an interview to a Brit mag as part of her comeback (sprry, can't find) but I distinctly remember the cover quoting her as saying "Now that I'm 27 I'm not sexy any more". I disagree, but that's beside the point... It felt like a contrived remark.

Hmm.... After he heard about the deaths of Jimi and Janis, Jim Morrison actually went round telling friends "You're drinking with number 3".

Possibly because he too was living the "live hard die young" lifestyle?

Do no celebrities die a natural death? By that I include accidental be it substance abuse or a crash. If they do, which ones are on that list?

I'm not saying I know exactly how each of these people died. The few of the all those listed mentioned I view as suspicious. But this is ultimately speculation. We're trying to see if there's a borader picture.

Heeeyyyyy its the 27 Club!!! My other half has talked about this for years, but also says that these are the ones fixated on the most... the original 27 club memers were janice joplin, jimmi hendrix and jim morrison - although jim morrison was actually 29 - and brian jones, pig pen (greatful dead)....... anybody who died at 27 automaticly got lumped into it , including those who died at 26 and 28.

He says that in the 60's the big thing was " dont trust anybody over 30 "

Hendrix we now know was murdered, Kurt cobain made a carreer out of flirting with killing himself - there is only so many times a man can put out songs such as "i hate myself and want to die" before he eventually has to follow through with it. Richie Manic has money taken from his bank account here and there, which manic street still make sure his percentage goes into. I doubt the man is dead, he only ever wanted one album, and stayed true to his wishes by any means nessesary. He was supposedly absolutely devastated that the other members didnt want to break up as planned after they hit success (i personally dont blame them lol) Gold against the Soul was written whilst he was in the nut house - disapearing and staying so doesnt seem so out of character when seen in context

the 27 club has a romantic notion to it in a way, but living fast and dying young and leaving behind a beautiful corpse always has. I think that when you consider the mouths and couldnt-give-a-shit mentalities in the 27 club list, its possible these people COULD have been liabilities to the overall plans we dont know much about, but lets face it... hendrix would have probably turned to jazz, which isnt in the public eye anymore, and more could be said for the others too. If say... Billy Corgan had died young, his star would be much brighter than curt cobains.

Its detrimental to this particular thread, but if we stop looking at those who died and left a legend, and started looking at talentless fucks who have huge carrerrs and started looking into who these people are related to, i beleive that we'll find the conspiracy lurking there... not in those who have been frozen in time.

thats an impressive list but im sure you can dredge up many from any age. When you consider the access they have due to contacts and money, the pressures that you have to get on and deal with because you're in the spotlight - to quote my hubby - its the ACCESS to EXCESS.


Also... would the names on this 27 club list still be huge had these folks lived long enough for the fans to truely get bored of? would they still be some of the biggest names had they had the chance to use thier fame to experiment with complete waffle just because they wanted to? probably not. My generation didnt know about kurt cobain because he and his band and thier music changed the world overnight (some would say) it was because he was DEAD. And the rumours of courtney love having something to do with it.

Eddie Van Halen. Had he died 82-83, we'd be worshipping his ass too. Now we talk about how great he WAS.

if you look at the numbers 27 so 2+7 = 9. it symbolizes the end of a cycle. maybe they served their time to these people and they finished it up by killing them at age 27. i guess 33 you could say is 3x11 so 11 would be the chaos number. who knows right?

there does seem to be a lot of suspicious celebrity deaths these days.
